Kindly excuse my ignorance, but are the OE fog lamps of the Civic not upto the mark ? Instead of trying various retro fitments why not go for the OE foglights.


Cheers

I have not installed the OE ones, but similar one with exactly the same fitments. I don't believe OE ones (Stanley) will be any different. Probably Civic "V" users can comment on the OE performance.

Dinu, these are not edited pics, i have only this with me right now, will snap more and post for your confirmation.

I got these from a dealer in Punjabi bagh, here in Delhi. Costed me 6k(Though the actual price is much more). I dont know about your city, but seen atleast 5 different civic with these installed, they are readily available in the Delhi car markets.

I was going through the Civic review on TBhp, its written that Stock foglights are more powerful than in most other cars, can some users with OE fogs please comment. Thanks.

@a4_attitude: you have stock lights or Projectors?? Look up in your car manual for specific details. The projector requires H7 and H1 bulb in low and high respectively.

Please. Do not fit HIDs onto the reflector equipped fogs. The rest of us coming the other way have to see the road and God knows what else is ahead of us y'know. HIDs in reflector lights cause extreme glare and are really painful to look at.

Projectors or bust!

Dinu, The OE fogs are not very good. And they stay too close to the car even after the re-focusing. I am also on the lookout better lighting.

They are supposed to spread the beam close to the car.

It is a "FOG" Light NOT a Driving Light.
